    Unanswered: Report: rich text in textfield

    Hi,

    I need to make a report in access with a lot of static text (i.e., not database driven). Only a couple of fields in the report come from a database, the rest is just plainly static text.

    The issue I have is that this static text contains a lot of bold, italics and underlining. Something along this:

    ********************

    So what I am trying to do is put this all in a text box, but the problem is that the ENTIRE textbox gets underlined, bolded, italics or what not, and not individual words.

    If that is the case, then I need to make a separate textbox for each word which has a different format, and then kind of "collage" them together to make it look like it flows correctly.

    Am I missing something? Thanks for your help.

    Have you considered using a mail merge instead of a report?
